I believe you are mistaken. The OP is correct in his research into the 0-60 times.

The 330 auto is rated at a fraction of a second faster 0-60 than a 325 manual. The difference is so small a good driver or less weight, maintenance etc could easily produce a result where a 325MT could beat a 330 auto.

At higher speeds, the 330 would have the advantage of the extra HP.

A 330MT on the other hand would need to be poorly driven/maintained to be beaten by a 325MT.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
